(Special to The Register.) Topeka. Kas., E^b. 26.—Personal jealousies among the members of the legislature, particularly In the House of Representatives, in wanting their own bills called up and considered, is resulting in the slaughter of measures coming before the House. Members whose bills are well along on the calendar are lucky in having their measures conside'red but those whose meas- | ures are far down are, in many in- | stances, resorting to every possible measure to bring them to an eaVly \ hearing. A motion to put certain measures on special orders nearly always elicits a fight from the members whose bills are not included. And a motion to advance some measure far down on the calendar almost inevitably is voted down. The same rule applies in large measure to those bills that have come from the Senate having passed that body. There is a strong tendency for the House to shunt such measures to the end of the calendar, from which position nobody believes they will ever emerge. If the measures are not placed at the bottom of the calendar they are taken up and all after the ^ enacting clause is stricken out, if possible, and the House bill inserted bodily in its stead. But this does not satisfy many of the aspiring statesmen who, by that means, lose the prestige of having; the bills pass undjer their names. The bill, no matter how amended. Is still a Senate bill and rkalns the name of the man or committee of the Senate introducing them. Another complaint in the House has been the killing of numerous personal _ bills and Introduction in their stead \V. C. Austin, state printer, declares of a measure much like the original he wants to controvert the statement bill as a committee bill, denying tTle '. that the present session of the legls- memher of the satisfaction of having it: laure lias not accomplished anyniing. passed under his name.

To the world at large this contingency presents itself unexpectedly, because German authorities have heretofore deniec^ the possibility of such an extremity. Can Great Britain Be Isolated? In retaliation for Britain's course in preventing importations' of food from neutral nations into Germany, that coimtry threatens to draw a cordon of submarines and mines around the British Isles and shut them off effectually from the .outside world, declaring that starvation is a game which two can play.
